Koh Yao Noi (Little Long Island) and Koh Yao Yai (Big Long Island) are two sleepy islands still enjoying a slow pace of life located in Phang Nga Bay, only 1 hours boat ride away from the international resort island of Phuket.
The moment you step on to these islands the usual stress and worries of every day life melts away and the island pace of life gets a hold of you. While Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country these islands are mainly populated by peaceful Muslim communities that make a living from fishing, rice farming and rubber tree plantations.
The recent arrival of tourism to these islands hasn't affected the warm welcoming locals.
Our bike tour in these islands will have us cycling through a small market town, rice paddies, past mosques and fishing villages, through areas of natural jungle rich in plant life and fauna. The Koh Yao Expedition isn't all biking, you will also enjoy on the the final day a scenic boat trip to local islands that rise magnificently from the sea, perfect for some swimming!
This Biking tour combines small paved island roads with very little traffic as well as some off road dirt tracks through jungle areas and rubber trees. The distances covered are not excessive and anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will be able to enjoy this cycling tour. Some of the off road sections are hilly and can be a bit challenging but these sections are optional.
